Thierry Henry reacts to Cesc Fabregas’ display in Chelsea’s 3-0 win at Everton
The Arsenal legend was impressed with Cesc Fabregas' cameo performance in Chelsea's 3-0 win at Everton
Thierry Henry praised Cesc Fabregas’ impact from the bench after the midfielder helped Chelsea to ease to a 3-0 win at Everton on Sunday.
The Spain international started the Premier League clash on the bench after Antonio Conte opted to go with N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic in midfield.
Fabregas’ former Barcelona team-mate Pedro Rodriguez broke the deadlock in the 66th minute with a stunning long-range strike at Goodison Park.
England international Gary Cahill continued his remarkable goal-scoring run in recent weeks with a fortuitous second goal for the visitors.
Chelsea manager Conte opted to bring on Fabregas to see out three points at Goodison Park with eight minutes to go in the Premier League game.
And Fabregas produced a mesmerising performance in his eight-minute cameo, including a wonderful assist for Willian’s late third goal.
Speaking to Sky Sports about Fabregas’ impact from the bench, his former Arsenal team-mate Henry lavished praise on the playmaker.
“It was Cesc Fabregas at his best. He’s always looking to pass the ball. It was the best cross in the game,” Henry said.
Chelsea are on course to win a second title in three seasons.
